Book Description :

Here is the only book that explains fully in lay terms the grounds and procedures by which Roman Catholics who have undergone civil divorces can also have their former marriages annulled by the Church. In the last decade alone, annulements in the United States have increased from 350 to over 30,000. At present, there are an estimated eight million divorced American Catholics, banned from full participation in the Church if the remarry without obtaining an annulment. Many of these people could obtain annulments -- yet, until the publication of Annulment, the lack of proper information and guidance has discouraged the majority of them. This book makes available the rights of divorce Catholics under the Revised Code of Canon Law, which is now in effect. In everyday language, this authoritative handbook takes readers step by step through the process, defines the laws as they now exist, sorts through misconceptions and fears surrounding annulment procedures, dicusses the meaning and rationale behind the rules, lays out all the grounds (including the new psychological grounds), examines all factors (including costs), defines the various apporaches, and provides samples of the forms involved. The author, a lawyer himself, consulted with canon lawyers, priests, and laypeople, -- some of whom have already used his manual with success.Annulment offers hope and solid help to the increasing number of people directly and indirectly affected by the divorce-remarriage-annulment problem. Zwack cuts cleanly through the Gordian knot of uncertainty to point the way for realistic, clear, effective solutions to this longstanding, anguished problem.

Many people believe that the Roman Catholic Church's teaching on marriage is clear and consistent: marriage is a sacrament, the marriage contract is indissoluble, divorce and remarriage are forbidden. In this book, theologians, historians, and sociologists overhaul the church's teaching and practice on divorce and remarriage, as well as personal testimonies from a number of persons who have gone through the annulment process.

Book Description :

Jesus said of marriage: "What God has united, no one can divide". The Catholic Church interprets this to mean that remarriage is possible only after the death of the first spouse. So, it presumes that every wedding produces a marriage in which the spouses were united by God. However, the Church also recognises the possibility that a marriage that ended prematurely was not actually a true marriage; that there may have been a flaw of such magnitude that a valid marriage was not formed. When this can be proved, which is more often than most people would imagine, an 'annulment' can be granted and so the way opened to second marriage. How does the concept of marriage nullity reconcile with the teaching of Jesus? What are the grounds for nullity, what do they mean and in what circumstances might they be proved? How does a person obtain an 'annulment'? What does it mean for the status of children of the marriage? How much does it cost? Are there other ways of being able to remarry in the Church without obtaining an 'annulment'? What if an 'annulment' is not possible, for whatever reason? Does remarriage in such circumstances mean alienation from the sacraments, from the Church, even from God? The author is a canon lawyer who has worked in the field of marriage nullity within the Church for over thirty years. He has examined the details of thousands of marriages that ended in divorce. He uses that experience to guide the reader through the concept of marriage nullity, the grounds and the procedures for obtaining an 'annulment', including changes made by Pope Francis in 2015, and the other formal solutions that the Church offers to those who might want a second marriage. He also offers reflections about the 'internal forum solution' for those in a second marriage who cannot obtain an 'annulment'.

Book Description :

In 1993, Sheila Rauch Kennedy received a letter from the Boston Catholic Archdiocese announcing that her former husband, Congressman Joseph Kennedy, was seeking an annulment of their marriage. If the Church granted the annulment, the marriage, which had lasted twelve years, would be rendered nonexistent -- not simply ended, as was stated in the divorce decree, but invalid from the start. And their two sons would be regarded as children of an unsanctified union. Joseph Kennedy needed the annulment to remarry within the Church, and he encouraged his ex-wife to ignore the details. Stunned by the hypocrisy of the process and the betrayal of trust it involved, Sheila Rauch Kennedy was determined to defend the legitimacy of her former marriage. Shattered Faith is the fascinating chronicle of that struggle, and of what Kennedy uncovered about the uses and frequency of annulments in the United States. Interweaving her own experiences with those of other women whose trust in the Church was shattered by annulment, she tells a story that will surprise, anger, and move readers of every faith.

Book Description :

The recent controversy over Joe Kennedy's annulment gave only a glimpse of American Catholicism's open secret: that contrary to official Catholic doctrine, American churches grant annulments wholesale, freely declaring marriages nonexistent so that one or both partners can remarry in the church. The United States is home to only 6% of the world's Catholics, Robert Vasoli points out, but it now accounts for 75% of all Church annulments, two-thirds of which are granted on ostensibly psychological grounds. The real scandal, though, is not simply the numbers, but that Church marriage courts annul thousands of marriages that are actually valid according to Catholic teaching. Drawing on considerable research, the author details precisely how these courts let divorced Catholics--and many non-Catholics as well--bypass Catholic teaching and law. He shows, for instance, how they often help petitioners manufacture grounds for annulment, which are justified with specious psychological reasoning that are counter to the letter and spirit of canon law. Indeed, it may even be alleged that "lack of emotional maturity" at the time of the wedding can invalidate marriages that have lasted 30 years. The result has been a tidal wave: in 1968, the American church granted fewer than 600 annulments; today it hands out more than 60,000 a year. But Rome has not smiled on the performance of U.S. tribunals: of those psychological annulments appealed to the Roman Rota (the Vatican's highest marriage tribunal), more than 90% are overturned. This revealing look at annulment weaves painstaking analysis with a wealth of evidence as it illuminates the degree to which the U.S. Church has gone its own way since Vatican II on what constitutes valid marriage.

Book Description :

For some Roman Catholics, divorce has major consequences over and above those for non-Catholics. It is of crucial importance to these divorcees that, after the Family Law Act proceedings finish, the (Catholic) Marriage Tribunal is approached for a Canon Law finding that the marriage was null and void - such a finding can be made even though there are children of the marriage (who may remain legitimate despite a "null and void" finding). Any lawyer advising a Catholic on divorce should also advise their client to consider seeking counsel with the Marriage Tribunal. Eileen Stuart's book explains why; and also explains the concepts and steps which must be taken. The Honourable Austin Asche AC QC said:'For Catholics and non-Catholics alike, Eileen Stuart has provided an invaluable guide to the present debate in the Catholic Church. ... all will benefit from this scholarly work where the issues are clearly set out, fairly considered and carefully discussed.'
